Competitive university with great facilities and variety of programs.
Very responsive in their contact with students and student-friendly in their administrative parts.
-No opportunities for internationals in terms of internships and thesis projects. Very little educational and psychometric material in English. No intergration of internationals with Dutch students (seperate classes workgroups). Dutch students have the option to give certain exams in Dutch although the whole program is in English (unfair proviledge).View more
I live in Amsterdam and travel quite a bit to go to Leiden University, which is mainly because the first time I was at the university before enrolling, I felt like this is where I belong. The international environment, but also the overall vibe is really refreshing and peaceful. It is organized administratively and there are too many good things about the university that make you overlook the pitfalls. It is very diverse and like I said the international environment that I am in makes me feel at home.View more
Academic faculty were very approachable and seemed more than happy to help students. In my experience participation in classroom discussions, independent research and creativity in papers were very important.View more
Great university, welcoming to international students. Intl. Bachelor Psychology program covers broad range of topics / courses, allows for many individual elective courses. University is huge but city is very student friendly.View more
It is a good university, I would definitely recommend it even though there is some room for improvement. Housing arrangements are pretty expensive and in my opinion the specialization courses should have more available spots.View more
Leiden University is very competitive, especially when taking courses such as psychology or law. The first year at Leiden University is very tough. The teaching methods are not always very comprehensive or holistic, however, by the end of the first-year students are exposed to most (if not all) possible courses they can attend. After the first year, the university showcases all their amazing resources and exposes students to a wide array of courses that they can choose from. Leiden University has state of the art facilities and professors as from second year onwards, however, when it comes to first-year, students would benefit greatly from more transparency and guidance on how the university works as well as more elaborate materials to help students succeed.View more
The university is overly bureaucratic, except for when it suits the university itself. Professors have no interest in teaching and the quality of the education is subpar. Grades always come back late… but woe to the student who is a minute late. There is no sense of empathy among the faculty or any sense of parttime students having work or family commitments. The university only caters to those fresh out of secondary school. If you want a solid education, and a faculty that encourages independent thought and independent students- stay away! Go elsewhere!View more
The university has an excellent faculty. Students gets proper attention individually. Research work is extensive and of good quality. The course work is relevant to present scenarios and updated. Constant exposure to real world situations.View more
As a student in the underhraduate programme ‘Liberal Arts and Sciences: Global Challenges’, I can confirm that the programme is indeed challenging and international as promised on their website. Each student in the programme automatically receives housing from the university (high standard and low price), and the student life services are excellent (counsellors, RA’s, etc.) additionally, the courses are diverse and all the majors are extremely interesting. Many of the professors have extremelt interesting and practical professional careers, meaning that students get quality education preparing you for the working world. This programme is in The Hague, a super nice city that lends itself well to students of the Global Challenges programme.View more
